ACPITZ(4)                BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                ACPITZ(4)

NAME
     acpitz -- ACPI thermal zone

SYNOPSIS
     acpitz* at acpi?

DESCRIPTION
     The acpitz driver supports ACPI Thermal Zones.  Temperature information
     is available through this driver as a sensor which is updated every 10
     seconds or, if the implementation supports it, via an event.  If the tem-
     perature exceeds the 'critical' temperature threshold, the system will be
     shut down and powered off.  The sensor provided by acpitz can be moni-
     tored using sysctl(8) or sensorsd(8).

SEE ALSO
     acpi(4), intro(4), sensorsd(8), sysctl(8)

HISTORY
     The acpitz driver first appeared in OpenBSD 3.8.

AUTHORS
     The acpitz driver was written by Can Erkin Acar <canacar@openbsd.org>.
